I honestly do not understand why people ever got excited over these projects along the Mersey. Obviously I do not object to skyscrapers - I would not be here, but these U/C's are so very dire by design, such buildings belong to Manchester or Birmingham. The best the wonderful city of Liverpool can hope for is taller buildings that would stand in the view.

I would love to spend a couple of months travelling around Britain, there are so many places I've never visited, and never even thought of visiting before I found this thread. It's a shame we don't have great summers (apart from the odd one here and there, at least that is the case up this way), the dull weather sends you in to the nearest travel agent... pity considering we have such beauty on our doorstep.

Great thread, eddy.

In 2005 a panther-like animal jumped on a man in his garden in South London. The only way this was confirmed was that when he called the police they saw it too:

Over the years there have been cats killed :-
1989 - In Shropshire a Jungle Cat was fatally injured in a road crash
1988 - In Devon a Leopard Cat was shot
1988 - In Hampshire a Swamp Cat was killed crossing a road
1987 - On the Isle of Wight a Leopard Cat was shot

Other evidence:

No native animal is capable of this:

At least 4 leapards have been shot in the uK [2 in the Scottish Borders]:

This Leopard escaped in 2001 and has not been recovered:

Itīs amazing how London can look like a small exotic town and a mega city at the same time.
